- Highlights BorgWarner’s first integrated drive module (iDM) business in China
- The iDM220 provides over 200 kW of maximum power
- System available as a fully integrated module or stand-alone solutions
Auburn Hill, Michigan (USA) / India, August 8, 2023. BorgWarner is supplying ‘Li Auto’ its advanced integrated drive module (iDM220). BorgWarner has established its business in China, currently supporting two of Li Auto’s models- L8 and L9 range-extended electric vehicle (REEV).
“We are delighted to kick-off our first iDM production in China. We look forward to expand our partnership with Li Auto,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. “BorgWarner has designed the iDM220 with a scalable, modular architecture to meet diverse installation adaptations. Our customers expect it to provide smart, efficient, and reliable mobility solutions. We look forward to assisting Li Auto in unleashing their future sustainability capabilities by contributing industry-leading electrification solutions.”
BorgWarner’s iDM220 is a highly-integrated electric drive module operating at 400V. That is capable of providing over 200 kW of maximum power and an estimated 4500 Nm of peak torque.
The iDM includes an electric motor with a compact, hairpin-wound stator featuring a 220 mm outer diameter. It also features an integrated off-axis gearbox and a 400V silicon-based inverter. Which greatly reduces the overall system’s weight and size. All subsystems used in the iDM are part of BorgWarner’s technology portfolio and are available either as a fully integrated module or as stand-alone solutions for new energy vehicles. The BorgWarner Wuhan, China plant produces the iDM using inverters from the BorgWarner Suzhou, China plant.
In addition, BorgWarner’s Tianjin, China plant indirectly supplies the traction motor and generator motor for the front axle on Li Auto’s L7, L8 and L9.
